Summary: I actually mounted this with velcro on my shotgun under the barrel in front of the shell tube and it totally withstands the recoil and noise. I did use some foam padding. Pros: hardy, durable, easy to download directly to the PC.
Summary: Received the camera one month ago and have been using it daily since. Mostly as a helmut-cam but also for walking on beach with mono-pod accessory. Menu selection is good but somewhat hard to navigate in sunlight.
Summary: I highly recommend this sport camera above the others I've read about. Only two things I'd like to see improved on. It's only water proof up to 1 1/2 feet of water. I'd like to see a depth of at least 10 feet without any external accessories case.
Excerpt: This camera is great. Easy to use, shoots in high quality, decent battery life, and pretty light. My only gripe would be mounting capabilities out of the box. Handlebar mount doesn't fit newer larger handlebars - or seatposts. This leaves you with mounting on your helmet as the only option.
Pros: light, compact size, view finder, rotating lens for perfect angles, solid built-in microphone, multiple fps options (25/30/50/60 in 720p or 25/30 in 1080p), zoom functions, remote control, water resistant, still photoburst option (5 megapixel), 1/4" camera thread for mounting camera on standard t...
Cons: Limited mounting options right out of the box.
Summary: I think the HD170 is a fairly solid helmet cam, so I will be brief and list the pros/cons with this camera. Pros: 1) Rotatable fisheye lens (170 degree FOV at 720p). 2) Proper exposure in high light situations (skies are blue and clouds are not blown out). 3) LCD on cam. 4) Standard 1/4" mount.
Summary: Worked very well. The camera has excellent video quality. I like the swivel feature of the lense. I wish there were more adjustments in the menu. I would like to have some of the icons appear in the video, but not all. There is no way to selectively edit these.
Summary: I bought this because I wanted a high def (720 to 1080P) camera that would stand up to harsh treatment. I use it while on my ATV on the Rubicon and Fordyce trails and on my street bike. It works great.
Summary: There are plenty of video samples out there for this camera showing video quality. Try vimeo.com. My application is primarily mounted between the seats of a Honda S2000 for documenting autocross (racing). I bought this camera mainly due to a number features which have worked out very well.
A Great POV HD Video Camera - The best I have seen so far
15 December 2010
Summary: I was reluctant to write a review of the Drift HD170 POV Video camera since its hard to say more than the other reviewers who have commented on the product. I agree with all of them when they say its well built, extremely versatile and with very good video, but most of all for me its biggest...
Summary: This is a cam that has some very nice features, and at the same time, some real annoyances for me. Things I love: Video quality. Mini-LCD. Adjustable lens for mounting at any angle. Ability to display output directly to TV.
